Possible to fit ATV in back?

Hey, I currently have a F150, but really have always loved broncos and everything about them... and if/when I blow this truck up that might be my next buy. I was just wondering if anyone has ever done or seen an ATV fit in the back of one with the cap off and I guess rear seat removed. I go riding a lot and being able to haul my quad without having to drag behind a trailer would be awesome. If I got one I'd probably just soft-top it anyway, and takin the rear seat out for good or on occasion wouldn't really matter. Just for size reference I have a 400ex. I know i've seen someone with a dirtbike in the back of one, but never seen a quad.

I doubt a 400ex can fit. I can barely squeeze in my boys 110, but thats with the rear seat folded down and the top on.

How would you plan on getting it up in there? I have a soft top and would not be able to ride a quad up in. Nor would my tailgate hold the weight. between the wheelwells is 4' and you've got about 6' to work with, so I can see one fitting easy enough, it's just getting it in there, especially with any lift.

Well I have a couple of wood ramps and I just ride it into the back of my truck no problem... but then again thats an 8foot bed. And I guess the wheel wells on the bronco would be closer in than my truck, so that would be a pain to probably work around.

I used to have a 91 Bronco with no lift. I used to fit a 300EX in the back with the stock cap still in place. I had to remove the rear seat, handlebars and deflate the front tires. It was kind of a pain, but it worked.

Fit inbetween the wheel wells or have to pick it up overtop of them? If a 300 fit like that with the cap, then the 400 should be alright with the cap removed.

wheelwells would be the same....fullsize truck allows a sheet of plywood or drywall to lay flat between the wheelwell (need a good 48").

tailgate is said to only hold about 300lbs safely. You could probably beef the cables and have it hold closer to 500lbs, who knows. You'd need the top off though to ride it up in there.

I believe I had to pick the rear up to get it over the wheelwells.

As others have said, you should be able to but you'll have to work for it. In my case it was a Honduh 250EX and to make it fit we just had to loosen and roll the handlebars down and flatten the tires. Of course this was with the back seat removed but I was able to even close the tailgate and have the back window up.

Thanks everyone, I get the picture. Was mainly just curious for if/when I step into the Bronco world... For now I'm just thankful to have an 8foot bed haha. Even with a rollbar in the back can manage to fit two 400's with one stood up and the tailgate dropped (and a handful of ratchet straps). Thanks for the input everyone, definitely appreciate it.

you can make anything fit anywhere.....

as for getting it in there....was a time when I could put a riding lawn mower or ATV up in the back of a truck lifting the front end up on the tailgate then lifting and pushing from the back....

If I tried that now my nuts would fall off......

i would prob fit w the seat removed if a dirtbike can fit then a quad could bikes are longer....look at the pic with the blaster and add a good 6-8 inches in length with the 400 though. Are the wheelwells that much narrower on the bronco then the F150? I used to get my 450R in the back of my Quad Cab Dakota between the wheelwells no problem but the tires stuck out about 6 inches onto the tailgate.
